I have been pondering the thoughts of dressing modestly for months years now. Maybe I should say “feminine” instead. I absolutely hate to wear tight shirts and jeans. UGH…… They are so uncomfortable to me and I feel like a fat cow. Also, I am self conscious of my weight. To be blunt…. I am fat, not huge, but fat. Please don’t think that I am being insecure, but just honest. I am probably not at an unhealthy weight since none of my doctors have told me otherwise, but losing a few pounds wouldn’t hurt me. I prefer to wear capris, pants, or sweats/shorts(around the house) each day. Definitely, not a skirt. However, I do love to wear aprons.
Enough about my weight, blah, blah, blah….., and on to the conviction God has put in my heart. I really truly have been struggling with wearing skirts . My dh likes me to wear long skirts. He doesn’t require me, but just thinks I look nice in them. So, about a year ago, I made a promise, but failed to maintain it, to wear a skirt once a week. One of the biggest struggles I have with wearing skirts is…… What shoes to wear in the Winter? Spring and Summer are easy ~ just put on a pair of cute flip flops or sandals and off you go. I refuse to wear tennis shoes with my skirts. I just think they look dorky! Please don’t take offense if you have the confidence to wear them in public with a cute skirt ~ More power to ya ~ I admire you. So, if you have the answer to this question ~ Please let me know what shoes are appropriate and comfortable to wear with a casual skirt in the colder weather.
It was ironic and completely a God thing to me when I stumbled across this site. This past Sunday I challenged myself to wear a skirt for 7 days straight. I managed 3 days and gave up. I had the attitude… Oh, Jill…. God doesn’t really care… But obviously He does or I wouldn’t have stumble across this challenge this morning. So, funny, huh? So, today is the first day of my 7 day skirt challenge… I will be posting my thoughts during the next 7 days and maybe some photos in my feminine modest apparel.
I would be tickled if you participated in this challenge with me and let me know your thoughts. I need your encouragement on this subject.
Also, Let me know your personal thoughts on this subject… Do you think I’m crazy or what? Be honest!
